The command of the US Navy intends to speed up work on the creation of new submarine carriers of nuclear weapons. The parent company, the developer of submarine General Dynamics, has received a new tranche for the development of promising Columbia-type submarines, Warspot reports with reference to the portal defense-blog.com.


US Navy forced work on the creation of a new submarine type Columbia


According to the portal, the U.S. Navy submarines of the Ohio type will already have exhausted their resources by 2030, and according to plans of the US fleetthey should be replaced by the latest Columbia submarines. The program to create them is a priority for the United States Navy, and the military command is doing everything possible to ensure that work goes on without delay.

According to the contract signed in September 2017, the cost of developing a lead Columbia-type submarine will be 6,1 billion US dollars. A new tranche of $ 480,6 million for General Dynamics will be sent to purchase equipment with a long manufacturing process.

According to the plans of the US Navy command, the first submarine of the new type should be laid in the 2021 year and enter service in the 2031. The length of the new American submarine will be 171 m, the maximum width of the hull - 13 m. A non-reloadable nuclear reactor will be installed on the boat, operating throughout the life of the submarine. According to preliminary information the boats will be equipped with water jet propulsion. In service - sixteen launchers missiles Trident 2.

      They build boats of course quickly. But they now have to be written off 12 units. Let's see how they will be replaced before 2020.

      But about the dough.

      Gold reserves in the reserves of the Russian Federation in August rose by 31,1 tons

      Monetary gold reserves in the international reserves of the Russian Federation in August 2018 increased by 1,58% (+31,1 tons) and totaled 1 million ounces (64,3 tons) as of September 1999,95, according to materials from the Bank of Russia.

      Earlier, in January-July, the bank purchased 130,65 tons of gold, so the Central Bank of the Russian Federation for the first eight months of 2018 already purchased 161,75 tons of monetary gold from the foreign exchange reserves.

      The value of gold in reserves in August decreased by 0,19% to $ 77,265 billion as of September 1, 2018 from $ 74,411 billion as of August 1. The share of gold in international reserves also decreased - to 16,77% from 16,90%.

      Over the past year, gold reserves in the reserves of the Russian Federation grew by 13,87% (+ 223,95 tons) and as of January 1, 2018 amounted to 59,1 million ounces (1838,22 tons).

      The physical volume of gold in international reserves in recent years has grown steadily:
      2006 - 402 tons,
      2007 - 450 tons,
      2008 - 519 tons,

        Judging by the article, as well as from other publications, the First Colombia will only be laid in 2021. And this can be believed, since the Americans have recently had a tradition of starting a crude project with the hope of fixing everything, finalizing it "along the way." An example is "Zamvolt", "D.Ford" here you can also include the F-35, etc.

        The reserves of gold in the Russian Federation at the end of September amounted to 2170 tons, gold reserves of 460 mdod $. And all the submarines of the old Indos will not be able to be replaced by new ones either by 2020 or even by 2030, even THEORETICALLY, not the fact that at least half will be replaced. Meanwhile, now out of 14 "oGayeks" a maximum of 8 are on duty, that is, no more than four at a time, and 6 are in permanent repair. So with the strategic forces of the mattress, everything is pretty good, in total, our strategic nuclear forces are much more powerful and newer.

        The physical volume of gold in international reserves has grown steadily in recent years.

        To invest in an illiquid, cheapening resource is a brilliant economic policy.

        World gold prices have shown a record drop since December 2017. Among the main reasons, experts call the US Federal Reserve policy and the strengthening of the dollar. The decrease in the cost of this precious metal has already affected the international reserves of Russia.
        The fall in gold prices was reflected in the international reserves of Russia. According to the Central Bank, from June 15 to 22, the amount of gold and foreign currency reserves decreased by 1,3% - from $ 462,4 to $ 456,3 billion. This weekly decline was the highest over the past year and a half.

          If you wish, you can justify anything, but diesel-electric submarines are not SSBNs, by the way, they are also doing 7-8 years for us, and this is with the approved project.

Taking into account the fact that the Minutemans are all in "anomalies" and fly every other time, the Indos must pray to God that we are humanitarian and did not take advantage of the situation without multiplying them by zero.

    Such interesting material. The only problem is that today another information was published on this project:
    Donald Trump’s administration’s plans to equip Trident D5 offshore ballistic missiles with low-power nuclear charges could be frustrated: Democratic congressmen have drafted a bill against this initiative.
    The document, published on Congressman Adam Smith’s website, implies a ban on the research, development, production and deployment of low-power nuclear warheads for submarines.
    The authors of the bill warn that the development of low-power nuclear forces can lower the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons and increase the risk of the US being drawn into a nuclear war.
